Kimbo Slice: Told He Needed Heart Transplant ... Days Before Death

Breaking News

Kimbo Slice was told he had been suffering from congestive heart failure in the days before his death and desperately needed a heart transplant ... this according to a hospital report. 

The report -- which was given to the Broward County Medical Examiner's office -- says Slice was admitted to Northwest Medical Center on June 3rd and told he had a liver mass and congestive heart failure. 

Doctors told Slice's family that he needed a heart transplant -- and appeared to be taking measures to transport him to a clinic in Cleveland on Monday night ... but he died before that could happen

Slice was pronounced dead around 7:30 PM local time. 

Also worth noting ... the report also states 42-year-old Slice did not have a history of drug use.

As we previously reported, the medical examiner's office is not doing an autopsy -- and now it's clear why.
